Question is do he live in the Ward? What does he own or where does he rent or do he live with someone else?
Fact Check That Part!
Fighting Crime that is your assignment.
The Committee to Re-Elect Andre’ Knight has committed to run our re-election efforts on the outstanding record of success and growth that Rocky Mount has experienced in the 15 years that our candidate has served with distinction and honor as the City Council Representative for Ward 1. Councilman Knight, from the outset of his first candidacy, has been maligned, accused and vilified unjustly. Thankfully, the people of Ward 1 saw through every attempt to disqualify our Candidate, Council Representative Andre’ Knight, and sent him back to serve the people and lead progress for all of Rocky Mount.
We believe that cheap stunts that our candidate’s opponent is attempting to perpetrate are dishonorable, sad and desperate. First of all, the recent Facebook posts that Mr. Pittman has published on his page are libelous and slanderous. The information is false, the pictures are not of his house and his allegations of neglect, taking advantage of people who are struggling to survive and violating City ordinances are lies. Our candidate has not addressed Mr. Pittman’s own inconsistencies in his business and legal affairs. From the outset, he blamed Councilmen Knight and Blackwell for targeting him and trying to evict him from City property. Lies. Both Councilmen tried supporting him as a new downtown business by referring potential clients to him and even taking their own personal computers to him to repair. Regardless of the disappointing outcomes they experienced in their business interactions with him, they did not slander or accuse him. It was the Administration of the City of Rocky Mount, under the advisement of the City’s Attorney’s office, that held Mr. Pittman responsible for his own obligations as a tenant of the City. The NC judicial system resolved that matter recently and our Council Representative had nothing to do with the complaint or the outcome. This is documented history.
Unlike his opponent, Councilman Andre’ Knight has a strong record of advocacy and accomplishment. He does not have to conjure vague images, create suspicion and sow discord through veiled Helms, Reagan and Trump smoke and mirror tactics. We’ve seen all that before. Our candidate led the fight to bring relief to our electric customers in Rocky Mount and to our friends throughout eastern North Carolina from unjust charges levied by Duke Power through Electricities. That battle with industry titans was fought and won. That is documented history.
Our candidate has helped recruit business investment to Ward 1, led revitalization efforts and advocated for increased funding for housing, business development, and enhanced safety measures in inner-city communities in Rocky Mount. Rocky Mount is better than it has ever been. We have new housing where dilapidated warehouses once stood. We have cleared blocks of ruined houses where open-air drug markets existed. We have created and funded policies and projects that have brought tens of millions of dollars in public and private investment to downtown Rocky Mount. For the first time EVER, an international hotel brand is seriously considering locating in east Rocky Mount with the prospect of bringing brand new commercial and retail developments and condominiums to our downtown in Rocky Mount/Edgecombe County. That is documented history.
Our candidate has been a strong advocate for poor people, the elderly and the sick and has brought progress to our City through his leadership. He chairs a real Board of Directors at OIC that serves thousands of real people every month. Under Knight’s leadership, real people are being trained, put to work, opening businesses and their healthcare concerns and needs are being met. More documented history, not fictional and vague accomplishments.
Our candidate is a real entrepreneur that has run a family business since the 1990s and struggles as every small business owner does. There is no shame in not having all the money you need for everything you need all the time. However, we believe that it is deceitful, dangerous and treacherous that a candidate who wants to represent people in Ward 1 brazenly leads and carries an agenda of lies, sabotage, destruction, and annihilation of every policy and leader that has opposed unjust institutions, practices, and people. Andre’ Knight has not received endorsements or accepted money from people who have openly maligned east Rocky Mount and Edgecombe County, disparaged and disrespected our elected and appointed leaders and have tried to destroy regional growth and economic success in Edgecombe County. That is documented history too.
Right now, the Committee to Re-Elect Andre’ Knight is focused on winning this election through the support of the people again. We cannot and will not be distracted by baseless lies and innuendo. That’s a well-thought and planned Trump-inspired move. We will not respond to every falsehood that is published and every fear that is promulgated by our opponents. But it is a mistake for our opponent to think that he can say whatever he wants to say without being accountable for his words and actions. We know he is just one small cog in a web of candidates who are being paid, endorsed and supported by privileged millionaires to destroy the true unity that is bringing life again to historically neglected communities and neighborhoods.
We know that we are fighting institutionalized racism that is fueled and fed by the supporters of President Trump right here in Rocky Mount. It’s happening all over the country, we saw some of them in Greenville a few weeks ago and those same forces are trying to destroy the progress we have all made working together in Rocky Mount. We all have eyes to see and ears to hear. We lived through Jesse Helms’ tactics and we’ll make it through Donald Trump strategies. Our candidate has a brain to think independently and a mouth to speak TRUTH TO POWER. Andre’ Knight is UNBOUGHT AND UNBOSSED. Now that is documented history and that is why we support Andre’ Knight as our candidate for City Council for Ward 1!

See Tarrick’s Pittman post https://www.facebook.com/tarrickpittmanward1/
Wow! Dude came out smoking against Andre so now let’s see how this unfold.
You wonder why there is a lack of code enforcement throughout our city? These pictures were taken at the old Wimbley house at 110 Braswell St. You know the one. Near the Library that gave a certain politician his claim to fame.
How did that give Andre Knight his claim to fame? He had the house before he was elected to the council?
The adult daycare! The one that goes into foreclosure once a year.
Wow! I ain’t never heard this before so I learnt something new today!
There are 5 elderly grown men who live in the house and share the facilities. They are being charged $800 per month each to live in these type of conditions. Is it even zoned correctly for this type of business model?
So you need to have special zoning to rent that house?
Is the light bill being paid for by the citizens?
Could you better explain that? Are you saying the citizens are taking up donations and paying the light bill?
Can you do an article RM Telegram and inform us on this? Oh, I forgot the editor Gene’s wife sits on a board at O.I.C. To much of a conflict for that to happen.
Wow! I didn’t know that Gene’s wife sits on the board. Again I learnt something today.
Damn the Telegram been writing about Andre for how long.
How can we expect our elected officials to focus on Housing in our community when they are slum lords themselves and continue to turn their backs on enforcing housing codes.
Okay I got that but the last time I checked Andre only has one vote so are you telling me that his one vote carries the majority?
But you did say they, so who else are you referring to?
The landscaping looks horrible! That house was known to have immaculate grounds back in the day before it was sold.
A strict code enforcement program was the advice given by two independent studies on housing. The 2014 Crossroads to Prosperity Report and the 2019 UNC Greensboro housing study both listed code enforcement as a priority.
So what are you trying to say?
We must do better and hold our elected officials accountable.
Elected officials should always be held accountable not just when a want a be candidate decides to run for office.
What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong!
Damn you got that right! LOL!
Seriously, look at the pics!!!!! The windows are sealed with paint. I see why they were not concerned about the mold at CoolGeeks! Look at those walls and tile!!! If they will house the elderly in these type of conditions, they don’t care about no one but themselves! They use the pro black stance to fool the masses all the while squatting on black people while building their empire in the process.
I waiting on a response from Andre so I will post as soon as I receive it.
30% of the people who live in Ward 1 can’t afford their basic needs!
So how is that Andre’s fault and how can he change that?
But how can the folk you speak of change that themselves?
Let’s change the culture in our city!!!!!
Change what Culture?
Johnny Cunningham he needs your help to get that property up to code!
Wow! Damn Johnny Cunningham what you got to do with it? Oh he calling you out because you are supporting Andre. Wow!
Here is a petty P.S. The sign in front of your “Campaign Headquarters” on Tarboro Street is out of compliance with the Historic Preservation society’s sign guidelines for Downtown.
Has this been reported?
But Tarrick I wonder you even have been at the Douglas Block if it had not been for the current council?
But Tarrick damn if business is so damn good, then why in the hell didn’t you pay the money on July 15, 2019? When will he pay?
But Tarrick it appears your addresses of where you live is questionable since you stated in March 2019 in the Rocky Mount Telegram you have lived on Woodland Ave for over a year. However your voter’s registration shows you voted in Nash County around 5 months prior to the March in November 2018. Damn that could be challenged by any Democrat as to if this is voter fraud. The local Board of Elections would rule on that.
But Tarrick you go down to Edgecombe County Board of Elections around June and change your voters registration but now say you live on Rosewood Ave. And when you file for Ward 1 you say you live on Rosewood Ave.
But Tarrick you say you are a numbers guy so help me with this math.
So from November to March is how many months?
Let’s talk about that part!
But what are you so damn mad about?
It appears to me you need to be focusing on your business and getting some drivers license. I am just saying!
But that ain’t none of my business though, but you running for council is my damn business although I can’t vote for or against you.
The Political Agitator’s response: This dude need to go somewhere and sit down and shut the hell up. He is allowing some Special Cs to make him look stupid by trying to enter into politics. Damn fool crazy as hell along with them. Who supports a known criminal for a political office.
A downtown Rocky Mount businessman has been ordered by the judicial system to be evicted from his location in city-owned space and to pay the municipal government more than $15,300 in past-due rent.
Tarrick Pittman, owner of Cool Geeks computer repair in the Douglas Block, was issued the ruling from the Edgecombe County Superior Court. Judge Marvin Blount of Pitt County signed the order in the city’s favor on July 16.
The order shows the judge told Pittman to pay $15,320, plus all costs of the legal action. Pittman can appeal to the state Court of Appeals.
Blount’s order was not yet in the case file at the Edgecombe County Courthouse when a reporter went there earlier this week, but the reporter obtained a copy of the document from the city’s attorney, Jep Rose, of Poyner Spruill.
Rocky Mount’s municipal government since last autumn had been arguing in court papers that Pittman breached a sublease agreement by failing to . . . (Read more)
Wow! Robbie Davis likes Tarrick Pittman because his grandmother supported Ronald Regan back in the day. Really! Robbie agreed to making a campaign contribution. Oh that is makes sense because he is anit-Rocky Mount and anti-Councilmen Reuben Blackwell and Andre Knight. Please share his explanations with us about his latest court cases the one wit the city on July 15, 2019 where the judge ordered the property where Cool Geeks is located to be turned over to the city and that he pay the city in the amount of $15,320.00. He also has a court case coming up on August 12, 2019 so we will see how that unfolds. Robbie said Tarrick didn’t bring up Race as an issue. Well that is a problem right there because it is fact that race is an issue when it comes to Rocky Mount City Government. Robbie says when he brought up race that they had very close views on the subject so therefore race is an issue. I find it interesting that Robbie says Tarrick is not living in 1960. He sure the hell ain’t because in 1960 the Rocky Mount City Council was probably all Caucasian. However we know that 1960 was sure enough a point in racial history. Robbie Davis like myself can’t vote for Ward 1 candidates but the difference in he and I is Robbie got big money. I have no money to give candidates. But folk if Robbie Davis is supporting Tarrick Pittman you better know that Robbie don’t give a damn about Rocky Mount City Government and he is mad with them right now. I dare you to research Robbie.
What in the hell have Andre Knight buying property got to do with him serving as an elected official? Your ignant ass can’t buy anything because you can’t pay your rent on Cool Geeks and probably made up the mess about the mold because you couldn’t pay your rent. Just my ignant ass opinion. But on last Monday a judge ruled that the city is the owner of the building and your ignant ass got to move out plus pay $15,320.00.
I don’t well you ain’t talking Andre not being responsible when your ignant ass has a court date that you continued to August 12 for your traffic tickets.
Your ignant ass is trying to point fingers when you don’t know which way to point because you are ass backwards.
Ignant ass prove where I have printed inaccuracies and false narratives. I do my homework and I obtain documents because they are public information. I will speak these trues however I like and really so that ignant asses like you will say something about my writings. Ignant ass I write according to whom I am addressing. Because I am addressing an ignant ass I will write ignantly.
One thing I don’t do is use scare tactics. If these trues scare folk then that is their problem not mines.
So you know Andre’s plan? Where did you get his plan from because I have not see at the Board of Elections office the day he filed and addressed the people present. Oh you probably looked at my video on YouTube on the day he filed.
